Left-Wing Architect Podesta Blurbed
Forthcoming Book on Chuck Hagel

Breitbart´s Big Peace, by AWR Hawkins

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 1/10/2013 11:37:33 AM

In a sign that Chuck Hagel´s nomination as Secretary of Defense may have been long anticipated, several prominent left-wing figures have emerged as supporters of a forthcoming biography of Hagel. The biography, Chuck Hagel: Moving Forward, by University of Nebraska journalism professor Charlyne Berens, is due out July 1, 2013, and appears to be part of a larger effort to position Hagel for bigger things. For example, John D. Podesta, former Chief of Staff to Bill Clinton and 2008 transition team leader for president-elect Barack Obama, recommends the book thus: [This] terrific biography brings Chuck Hagel´s

Comments:
You know when he is supported by one of the Soros sycophants he´s nothing but bad news. Why on earth do people like him call themselves Republicans.

We already know WHAT you are. All we have to add is, you´re also a wannabe hick.
Say, how was Bob Kerrey? Was he as creepy as Debra Winger says?

How Bad is Detroit’s Government?
Really, Really, Really Bad
PJ Media, by Rick Moran    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 8/10/2013 11:56:46 AM     Post Reply
Reading this Detroit News story about the tale of a $1 million dollar check that ended up in a desk drawer for a month before being deposited, I tried to imagine what the city employee was thinking when they so casually and negligently dealt with Detroit’s money. I came to the conclusion that the employee wasn’t thinking — period. As the story makes clear, city employees, their managers, on up the chain to their political masters — all have embraced a dysfunctional mindset where they believe the problems of the city are so immense,

Anthony Weiner´s donations
shrink in wake of sexting scandal
New York Daily News, by Celeste Katz*    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 8/10/2013 11:40:16 AM     Post Reply
Anthony Weiner’s campaign fund-raising has virtually dried up since revelations of a sexting relapse rocked his bid for mayor. Weiner (inset) received an average of just $1,897 a day in donations since the new sexting scandal erupted July 23, campaign finance records released Friday show. That’s a trickle of the $16,434 he received each day, on average, in the 50 days after launching his run for mayor on May 22. The records also show that Weiner’s wife, Huma Abedin, collected no money on his behalf

Booker Start-up Connected to
CNN´s Zucker Under Scrutiny

Because a media that should be in competition with one another instead protects one another, there is no mention of CNN chief Jeff Zucker´s connection to Cory Booker´s online start up in this MSNBC piece. But when you have MSNBC fretting that the stench around a company attached to a Democrat rising star stinks, it is worthy of note: If Aaron Sorkin were to craft a movie about Newark Mayor Cory Booker, you can bet that Waywire, Booker’s controversial technology start-up, would provide a cautionary tale for the mayor’s voracious ambition.

Despite political pressure from both sides of the aisle, there are talks happening behind the scenes that may lead to an unlikely team working together to produce this controversial Hillary Clinton miniseries. The New York Times´ Bill Carter reports the "odd" team of NBC and Fox Television Studios are in early talks to co-produce the four part Hillary Clinton miniseries, released in 2016 ahead of a yet-to-be-announced presidential run, that network chairman Robert Greenblatt announced last week at a Television Critics Association panel. The Hollywood Reporter says this is happening, too. Neither company seems to care about

Ames, Iowa — Representative Steve King (R., Iowa) says he’s “enjoying” his job, but refused to rule out a presidential bid in 2016. King, whose upcoming visit to early primary state South Carolina ignited talk that he might be thinking about the presidency, tells National Review of 2016, “I haven’t ruled anything in or out. I’m enjoying my job.” “I’ve watched here as any member of the house or senate that sets foot on Iowa soil … [it] starts a rumor that they’re running for president.

Let There Be Amnesty!
National Review Online, by Mark Krikorian    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 8/10/2013 11:00:38 AM     Post Reply
There’s still a real chance that the Captain Schettinos of the House Republican brain trust will rescue Obama’s presidency by passing an amnesty. But some in the open-borders crowd are getting nervous about John Boehner’s ability to achieve Obama’s objectives. Their fear is that this session of Congress will end with no amnesty bill on the president’s desk, or with one whose criteria they consider too draconian. Their fallback strategy? Have Obama amnesty the illegal population by administrative fiat.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada said Friday that Obamacare isn´t the final word in government health care reform, it´s just a big step toward the real solution, which is a single-payer system. The Las Vegas Sun reports that Reid made that statement during an appearance on a Nevada PBS news discussion program: "Reid said he thinks the country has to ´work our way past´ insurance-based health care during a Friday night appearance on Vegas PBS´ program Nevada Week in Review.

Over the last few days, militant atheist author Professsor Richard Dawkins has caused an uproar with a Tweet that transcended the bounds of Twitter and made it into the (mostly British) mainstream media. Dawkins tweeted: “All the world’s Muslims have fewer Nobel Prizes than Trinity College, Cambridge. They did great things in the Middle Ages, though.” I had once considered tweeting something similar — that the inventions of Jewish doctors had saved more Islamic lives than all the imams in history put together — but

Americans renouncing U.S. citizenship surged sixfold in the second quarter from a year earlier as the government prepares to introduce tougher asset-disclosure rules. Expatriates giving up their nationality at U.S. embassies climbed to 1,131 in the three months through June from 189 in the year-earlier period, according to Federal Register figures published today. That brought the first-half total to 1,810 compared with 235 for the whole of 2008. The U.S., the only nation in the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development that taxes citizens wherever they reside, is searching for tax cheats in offshore centers,

The IRS official in charge of the exempt organizations office in the Cincinnati branch at the time conservative groups applying for tax-exempt status were unfairly targeted just got a promotion. Cindy Thomas has been appointed to the senior technical adviser team for the Director of Exempt Organizations. Thomas, a 35-year IRS veteran, will fill the spot vacated by Sharon Light. Light, a one-time close adviser to Lois Lerner, is the sixth senior IRS official to leave the agency. Lerner is the employee at the center of the political storm that hit the nation earlier this year. She was

The owner of a shop in Zurich where US talk show host Oprah Winfrey says she encountered racism has called the incident a "misunderstanding". Winfrey, one of the world´s richest women, claimed an assistant refused to serve her in an upmarket handbag shop. She was apparently told one of the bags on display was "too expensive" for her. Shop owner Trudie Gotz told the BBC that Winfrey was "absolutely allowed" to look at the $35,000 (£22,500) bag, which was kept behind a screen. "My salesperson wanted to give her the handbag in her hand. But she didn´t want

Nobody tells Oprah she can´t afford a handbag. Oprah Winfrey is one of the richest entertainers in the world, thanks to her willdly successful 25-season run on "The Oprah Winfrey Show" and her latest media foray with the newly revitalized Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN). The entertainer earned an estimated $77 million from June 2012 to June 2013 alone, according to Forbes, but she says she still experiences racism because she is African American.

"What happens on October 1, in 53 days, is for the remaining 15 percent of the population that doesn´t have health insurance, they´re going to be able to go on a website or call up a call center and sign up for affordable, quality health insurance at a significantly cheaper rate than what they can get right now on

Nanny State: If any question remained about the Obama White House´s appetite for running everyone´s life from Washington, it should be settled now. This administration even wants to dictate neighborhood makeup. Like your neighborhood? Don´t get used to it. The Obama Department of Housing and Urban Development might decide it wants to dictate changes. HUD is, according to Fox News, considering "a new rule that would allow the feds to track diversity in America´s neighborhoods and then push policies to change those it deems discriminatory."

The Washington Post is a legend in the minds of the Washington elite, so its financial decline has caused quiet panic. As NPR media reporter David Folkenflik put it, “You think of stories like the Pentagon Papers, Watergate, these are all stories where The Washington Post led the nation’s understanding, the world’s understanding of some major issues.” Outside the liberal media, you wonder how long Post fans can wallow in their Nixon-crumbling polyester “glory days” in the early 1970s. But nostalgia ruled as the Graham family sold the Post to Jeff Bezos, the billionaire founder of Amazon.com.

Why can´t we talk about IQ?

“IQ is a metric of such dubiousness that almost no serious educational researcher uses it anymore,” the Guardian’s Ana Marie Cox wrote back in May. It was a breathtakingly ignorant statement. Psychologist Jelte Wicherts noted in response that a search for “IQ test” in Google’s academic database yielded more than 10,000 hits — just for the year 2013. (Snip) There is a large discrepancy between what educated laypeople believe about cognitive science and what experts actually know. Journalists are steeped in the lay wisdom, so they are repeatedly surprised when someone forthrightly discusses the real science of mental ability.

Tonight, I went on Lawrence O´Donnell´s show, and Lawrence O´Donnell yelled at me. Or, rather, he O´Reilly´d at me. That O´Donnell interrupted and harangued and mansplained and was generally an angry grandpa at me is not what I take issue with, however. What bothers me is that, look: your producers take the time to find experts to come on the show, answer your questions, and, hopefully, clarify the issue at hand.

The Clintons have decided to rent a different house in the Hamptons this summer after they only received a small portion of their security deposit back from the home they rented last year. The famous Democrats have been frequent visitors to the expensive summer getaway in Long Island, and rented the same beachfront house in 2011 and 2012. [Snip] When it comes to rentals in the Hamptons, many owners use the security deposits as a way to pay for the utility fees like heat and grounds-keeping charges.

Justice: The wife of a Fort Hood survivor claims the Defense Department is "slapping victims with gag orders" and telling family members not to talk to the press following testimony in the trial of Nidal Hasan. One of the great scandals of the Obama administration has been its shameful designation of the Nov. 5, 2009, rampage at the Army base in Killeen, Texas, by Maj. Nidal Hasan as "workplace violence." It has only compounded the pain and suffering of the victims and their families who have now apparently been ordered to shut up about it.

I know where they’re at,” Gutiérrez said in an interview with Ed O’Keefe at The Washington Post.

President Barack Obama announced Friday afternoon that the White House will publicly release a summary of the legal authorities through which the National Security Agency conducts its controversial surveillance programs. ´Given the history of abuse by governments,´ he said, it is important to explain how such a program is managed, and - equally important - what it may not do. He described his working relationship with Vladimir Putin as ´candid´ and ´blunt,´ and seemed to dismiss concerns that the Russian president´s body language indicated a lack of willingness to work with the United States.
